    I booked with Lin two days in Inle Lake. I was interested in an specific tour around the lake orientated to my interest in photography. After exchanging my interests and closing the deal all unexpected things started. In the airport the tour guide was waiting, but it wasn’t Lin, it was another person, because Lin is an agency... this was never informed to me, but this wasn’t the worst part, the assigned guy to me didn’t know nothing about what I wanted... so this part of the experience was really bad. After the guide did his best to adapt to me and was proffesional. But I wouldn’t contract anymore anything to Lin.

    We wanted to visit to Myanmar in March and thought it was diffcult to arrange by ourseleve so we contacted Mr.Lin. It was a great choice because helped from intial to the end of the trip. Guides are very knowelegable and kind and drivers are excellent. We highly recommend him.

    Note : He is not a guide but tour operator.

    Nyan Lin Aung was our tourguide from november 27th to december 3rd 2013 and was a great guide in every aspect. My parents and I have already made trips to many countries and we feel that on all our travels we never met such a perfect guide. Nyan Lin Aung has a huge knowledge - not only "just" about the places we visited but also about the way of life, the history and culture, plants and animals etc. in general. We were very interested and asked him a lot of questions even about minor details and not one of these questions went unanswered. And he has a perfect way of sharing his knowledge - very entertaining and lively and interesting and never dull. Furthermore, he was always very kind and very attentive and therefore he "felt" where our interests lay. For instance, he made it possible that we could visit a quarry on our way from Mandalay to Pyin Oo Wlin because he noticed that we were interested in seeing as many different professions as possible. At the beginning of our time together he told us that our wishes were his command. This statement was not just empty words, Nyan Lin Aung lives according to them and therefore all of our wishes were fulfilled. On our last evening in Mandalay for instance, after an interesting but quite long day, I wished to visit a certain shop that I had read about in a book about Myanmar. We told Nyan Lin Aung that he could drop us off at the shop and that we would go to the hotel by ourselves, but he (and the driver) was so kind as to check if the store still existed (it did, but was in a different location than what was written in my book) and then we were driven to the shop and he waited until I had chosen what I wanted and then we were transported safely to the hotel, even though for Nyan Lin Aung this meant that his amount of leasure time was considerably shortened. Of course we thanked him for this special surplus service and he simply said that he wanted to make your stay as nice and comfortable as possible. Nyan Lin Aung was also very fun to be with and we had a great time with him. He was always in a good mood, always concerned about our well-being, always on time, had impeccable manners etc.. We felt blessed that he was our guide and were genuinely sorry when we had to say goodbye.
